If you park in a public garage you don't have gps, so your app wouldn't work.

I would rather go for a nice (google/who_ever) map software, where I 
can lookup
and remember (save) information about the place/street/where_ever I'm 
at. If you had a camera you could go even further - but I'm actually glad that
there will not be one. If you combine this app. with the address book 
you could
do real crazzy things like "show me the house of a CONTACT" in the case where
you can't find a particular location. I could go on...
